Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the business of senior portraits, part of Portrait Photography: High School Seniors.
- You may not be a professional photographer,…but it never hurts to act like one.…And I have a few tips here…to help you make your project run smoothly.…I'm gonna start out with the shot list.…I think the shot list is very important,…even on a simple portrait shoot.…Now, for a wedding, of course,…you have to have a shot list,…'cause there are so many different events.…But even for a portrait shoot,…they come in handy,…because you're a photographer,…not a mind reader, and you need to know…what your client expects from the shoot.…So I just interview them,…and it could be at a coffee shop,…it could be on the phone,…and just jot down some of the shots…that they want to make sure they get during our session.…
Then I put those in a email, send it back to them,…say, are we on the same page here?…Once I get that response,…then I know that they and I are thinking…about the same sort of poses during the session.…So I think a shot list is very helpful.…Another thing that I like is the agreement,…and this is just an agreement…
